UMCOR Sunday

On Sunday, March 27 we will be recognizing UMCOR Sunday.  For 50+ years, United Methodist congregations have been taking part in a special offering, laying the foundation for the United Methodist Committee on Relief’s ministry of relief and hope. UMCOR’s work of alleviating human suffering around the world includes disaster relief and supplies, disaster risk reduction, health, and humanitarian development.

Donations to UMCOR Sunday provide the money needed to run the administrative side of UMCOR — last year, this was about $1.9 million. Because the churches support the administration, 100% of donations for advances (flood victims, Ukraine, and all the rest) go to those efforts. 

For the next couple of weeks, we will be accepting donations for both UMCOR Sunday and for UMCOR Global (Ukraine). There are two ways to contribute:

  1. Mail or drop off your checks payable to UMC Monroe and put UMCOR Sunday OR UMCOR Global (Ukraine) in the memo line.  Should you wish to give to both, just note it on the check.
  2. Give online through Realm on our website. On the home page, click on one of the buttons … UMCOR Sunday or UMCOR Global (Ukraine) — you’ll be linked directly to the fund.

UMCOR accepts donations all year long – whether through our church or directly to the organization. The need is always there to assist our brothers and sisters around the world.
